Nerves pass through a tunnel formed by the wrist bones and a tough membrane on the underside of the wrists. The tunnel is rigid, so repetitive motion, such as typing or swinging a tennis racket repeatedly can cause the tissues within this tunnel to swell. This pinches the nerves and creates a painful condition.
Essential oils have been shown to give a great deal of relief for the pain of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome when combined with Chiropractic treatment. This is due to their anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
